R.I. Gen. Laws § 28-42-24
§ 28-42-24. Custody and investment of fund or discontinuance of unemployment trust fund.
Sections 28-42-18 — 28-42-23, to the extent that they relate to the unemployment trust fund, shall be operative only so long as that unemployment trust fund continues to exist and so long as the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States continues to maintain for this state a separate book account of all funds deposited in that fund by this state for benefit purposes, together with this state's proportionate share of the earnings of that unemployment trust fund, from which no other state is permitted to make withdrawals. If and when that unemployment trust fund ceases to exist, or the separate book account is no longer maintained, all moneys, properties, or securities in it, belonging to the employment security fund of this state shall be requisitioned by the director, and shall be transferred to the general treasurer as the custodian of the fund, who shall hold, invest, transfer, sell, deposit, and release those moneys, properties, or securities in a manner approved by the director in accordance with chapters 42 — 44 of this title. These moneys shall be invested in the classes of securities legal for the investment of public moneys of this state, and this investment shall at all times be so made that all the assets of the fund shall always be readily convertible into cash when needed for the payment of benefits. The treasurer shall dispose of securities or other properties belonging to the employment security fund only under the direction of the director.
